AM: 8 miles in SH.  Did a workout- alternating 200s and 600s x4 with short recoveries.

PM: 10 miles in EL with Anthony and Chad.  We did a modified workout of 2 miles worth of 30 and 60-second intervals on the trail.  I did not pay attention to pace at all.

7 miles with Anthony in East Lake.  Some striders added later.


Race Prep- So it looks like I'll have a good shot at the top 3 this Sunday for the last leg of the halfathon race series, but will try for higher.  I’m already pretty pumped for it in a “racing” aspect.  It’s a culmination of 4 half marathons where 3 of your times are added together and the lowest cumulative total time wins $1,000.  This last race must be ran and counted in your total time.  Right now the standings are:

1st- Anthony-  - Leader -
2nd- Chris-     + 0:48 seconds
3rd- Me-        + 0:50
4th-  Sean      +3:48
5th- Lee        +3:55

I’m excited to see what I will do with a proverbial hill to climb.  I have to try to beat Anthony by 51 seconds who I beat in the 15k by 37 seconds two weeks ago.  As you can imagine, that extrapolates to almost exactly an overall tie for Sunday based on the above standings.  I also have to beat Chris- notorious for his stick-and-draft technique- by 3 seconds.  He’s usually the most fit of the 3 of us at any given time, but hasn’t raced locally in a while so who knows.  We once finished a race together and our times were the same and neither of us could tell who crossed the line first.  His PR is also similar to mine, so it could be a VERY interesting race

That being said, I will tentatively make a pace goal of... hmm… winning- by 50 seconds?  That, though, is dependent on the weather and the fitness/race plans of Chris and Anthony.  I’ve never gone into a race with the direct intention to “race” before, so this is going to be quite an experience. 

What strategy should I pick?  And will I cave, or do I succeed?  Drama ensues… :)
